According to La Prensa Grafica newspaper, Pineda received shortly after his appointment the representatives of the teachers’ unions to listen to their proposals, following the recent resignation of Carla Hanania, without giving an official explanation.

“What should have happened back in June 2019, when the former Minister of Education took office, took place: to have called the teachers’ unions to listen to their proposals,” said Daniel Rodriguez, secretary general of the Union of Teachers of Public Education of El Salvador.

Jorge Villegas, secretary general of Bases Magisteriales, added that the executive’s position was to “turn the page” on Hanania’s administration and focus on the future, without looking back.

Participants discussed the respect for the rule of law, that the processes be carried out in accordance with the Teaching Career Law and the repeal of the transitory decree for the hiring of interim teachers in schools.

Villegas pointed out that Pineda did not pronounce himself on the subject, only the presidential commissioner Carolina Recinos assured that the petitions would be studied.

Minister of the Interior Juan Carlos Bidegain, Hanania’s son, assured that his mother had left the cabinet for health reasons, while the press criticized her work.
